Set to play at this year's Toronto International Film Festival is director Agustina San Martín's feature debut To Kill the Beast.

The film stars Tamara Roca as a teenage girl who travels to a deeply religious community on the border between Argentina and Brazil in search of her brother. Staying with her odd aunt (Ana Brun), she learns of the strange beast that roams the area, while discovering her sexuality.

Julieth Micolta, João Miguel, Sabrina Grinschpun and Kaique Jesus also star.

Check out the trailer below.




The official synopsis reads:

Emilia (Tamara Roca), 17, arrives in a religious town on the border between Argentina and Brazil. She is looking for her long-lost brother, with whom she has obscure, unfinished business.

She stays in the jungle at her weird aunt Inés's (Ana Brun) hostel where, according to rumors, a dangerous beast appeared a week ago. This beast,  people claim, is the spirit of an evil man that takes the shape of different animals.

Between the real and the mythological, the human and the animal, guilt and sexuality, Emilia will seek to confront her past.
